October is Anti-Bullying Awareness Month:
We have been learning a pledge to be bully free, receiving morning reminders via the morning news about anti-bullying, and discussing bully prevention at our Quarter 2 Pep Rally. Next Wednesday, October 23, is Unity Day. We will wear Orange to be United against bullying. Together against bullying. UNITED for kindness, acceptance, and inclusion.
